Teeth Whitening

If your smile has lost a bit of its luster, you might be surprised at what a difference whitening your teeth can make. It's a simple, fast, and affordable option that can make a huge impact on your smile.

Your Omaha dentist offers two convenient options for brightening your smile, including an in-office procedure as well as customized take-home trays. We can help you determine which option is best for your lifestyle and budget.

This option is definitely ideal for the patient who needs quick results.

If you have an upcoming vacation, family reunion, or other big event, you might consider an in-office whitening treatment. Whitening can be completed during one short appointment at our office, and you will leave with teeth that are 6 to 10 shades lighter than when you came in!

First, Dr. Allen will place a protective barrier around your gums, which will keep the whitening gel away from your soft tissues where it could cause an injury. Next, she applies a high-strength whitening gel that is activated with a special light. When we're finished, we'll apply a fluoride treatment designed to minimize any sensitivity caused by the whitening gel.

After that, your treatment is completed and you can start enjoying all the benefits of your whiter, brighter smile.

Take-Home Whitening Trays

If you would like the convenience of whitening your teeth according to your own schedule and the freedom to brighten your smile whenever you like, then take-home whitening trays are the right choice for you.

Dr. Allen will create trays that are customized for your teeth using impressions we take here in the office. This ensures that you have a snug fit that will protect your cheeks, lips, and gums from extra whitening gel. We will show you how to apply the gel to your trays as well as how much to use, and you will be able to whiten your teeth at home at your leisure. When it's time to update your smile, you'll be able to purchase extra tubes of whitening gel from our office so your smile is always ready for the next big event.

The Benefits of Professional Whitening

With so many whitening products available at your local grocery store, why should you whiten your teeth with Dr. Allen? Professional whitening offers a number of benefits that over-the-counter products do not, such as these two major advantages:

  • Better results with less time. Because the whitening gel that Dr. Allen has access to is a much higher strength, you won't have to spend as much time whitening to reach your desired results.
  • Safety first. Whitening your teeth with the help of your dentist is always advisable in case you encounter any issues with sensitivity or injuries to your soft tissue.
